“Are you there? Let’s talk,” Li Sicheng said as quietly as he could . However, the habitual coldness was still there .
Standing with her back against the door, Su Qianci bit her bottom lip and did not respond .
After a while, Li Sicheng decided that she did not mean to let him in and said, “You should turn in early . I’ll drive you to school tomorrow morning . ”
Noticing that he was gone, Su Qianci let out a sigh of relief . At some point, she was covered in cold sweat . After taking another shower, she finished her homework and went to bed . In the late night, the door of Su Qianci’s room opened . A tall and handsome figure crept in quietly . In her sleep, she pushed her comforter away, moaned, and flipped over .
Li Sicheng’s eyes became soft as he leaned over and took her in, watching her while he stood next to her bed . Not knowing he was there, Su Qianci had a good night’s sleep .
The next morning, Su Qianci washed and heard Nanny Rong call, “Ma’am, breakfast . ”
“I think I’ll skip breakfast . I’m in a hurry and must go to class now . ”
“That is not okay . You must eat!” Nanny Rong said in a somewhat deliberately loud voice . “You are too thin and do not eat much these days . If you continue this way, you will be too skinny, and that is not attractive . ”
Su Qianci had to obey Nanny Rong, so she went downstairs with her backpack in hand . However, after she sat down, she looked around and did not see the person she wanted to find . Looking up, she saw the teasing look in Nanny Rong’s eyes . For some reason, Su Qianci felt like she was caught red-handed . With a blush, she bowed her head .
“He has gone to work . I heard the company has a new project in collaboration with an American firm, so he’s going on a business trip in the afternoon, to Chicago . ”
“He’s going on a business trip?”
Nanny Rong nodded, added more milk in Su Qianci’s glass and said, “Yes . He will be gone for several days . ”
“How many days?” Su Qianci couldn’t help asking .
Nanny Rong smiled a bit wider and asked jokingly, “You did not know? He came home last night, didn’t he?”
Seeing the ambiguous look on Nanny Rong’s face, Su Qianci felt at a loss . Taking a bite of her sandwich, she said, “He did not tell me…”
“Five days . ” The familiar deep voice made Su Qianci freeze . She looked at Nanny Rong . Nanny Rong just told her that he had gone to work . Nanny Rong lied to her?
Seeing her look, Nanny Rong immediately turned away . “I must go to the laundry . ”
Li Sicheng walked over to her, checked his watch, and said, “It’s 7:30 . I will drive you to school . ”
A bit upset about Nanny Rong’s lie, Su Qianci looked away and whispered, “I could go to school myself…”
“You’re sure you can find a taxi here?”
It was a villa district, so very few taxis would come near there . She would definitely be late if she insisted . So she had to be driven by him? However, thinking of what had happened a few nights ago in the car… Su Qianci’s eyes became wet . She bowed her head and did not speak .
Li Sicheng had a smile of self-mockery on his face as he said quietly, “I was joking . Yang is outside . ” Then he walked out of the door, but his fists were clenched, and his eyes were full of bitterness, when Su Qianci could not see…
